101 natural health and medicinal remedies

101 Uses For is popular and let's hope it stays that way. Our second book is presently called 101 tips for self sufficiency; we will certainly dip into this section for ideas. So post away and let's try and get at least one thread up to 101.

neat lavender essential oil (again!) for minor burns (e.g. on hand from hot oven, iron etc.) - cool area for few mins first with cold water, then when completely cool apply a few drops of neat EO. Often completely prevents blistering - magic!

To treat mouth ulcers. Make a gargle using two teaspoons of coriander seeds boiled in water. Once cooled, strain and use the gargle 3-4 times a day.

Eating fresh pineapple helps to clear mouth ulcers, it's the bromelaine in it that does the business.

Re mouth ulcers.
Speaking for myself, I always get them when I lack zinc. So though you can deal with them in many ways, to prevent getting them it's good to eat more shellfish (oysters!), peas/beans, yoghurt, (pea)nuts, whole grains and seeds.
Meat eaters are less likely to get a deficiency, as it's plentiful in liver and red meat.
Grow no evil, cook no evil, eat no evil!
